Hi William,

Russ's 2.5 is the same version as the 2.5 on which we are currently working.
The STABLE version is the 2.4 branch and the future 2.5 branch is the CURRENT
version.  You can download it there:

These are nightly snapshots of the Subversion development tree.

Feel free to test INN 2.5 if you want (and do not do a "make update" because
some configuration files have changed since the 2.4 version and such changes
aren't still documented in an upgrade procedure; it is safer to install it
on a separate folder with innd listening to another port).

All right.  Thanks for that information.

That's a lot, indeed.

Furthermore, it generates innfeed.dropped files!
